    Hello!

    It's been a while since I haven't posted anything, and something strange happened in the meantime.
    My P.Moranensis is growing like there's no tomorrow! Definitively my fastest grower right now, while Primulaflora just seems to be dying...
    And here I thought I was being foolish with trying out another pings...I had figured I would never manage with them.
    Moranensis is even giving a nice long flower stalk with a pretty purple flower that's been lasting for about a week now, incredible! =D
    If the dragon is bigger than his treasure, it's not worth the effort.

    My primuliflora has been alive for 14 months now. It has done well on a window sill, open tray, southeastern exposure through trees. I add water once a week, so it experiences varied water levels. It only looked ragged after sending up 8 flowers during Autumn and several plantlets. After a resting period it resumed flowering and plantlets in February. It is now producing flowers and plantlets. My Mexican pings, moranensis included, are doing well with the same approach.

    Hmm, maybe its the top layer of live sphagnum moss that prevents my primulaflora from rotting. Are you using live sphagnum as part of your mix?

    I'm using WET peat and I have it in a windowsill... it's virtually immortal. plantlets everywhere too! (if anybody wants to trade, I have some :P also U. gibba )
